A familiar building changes hands yet again

The Gurn has come up with a sign that might be suitable for the building that we know so well. (click the picture to enlarge)

Seriously fellow gurners, what now for the town centre masterplan? Will the Co-op want to keep two stores in Nairn? Will we become 'Co-op Town' ? The BBC reckons they might have to dump some stores anyway: 'The Co-op may now be told by competition watchdogs to sell some of the stores it has purchased, with Morrisons, Waitrose and Iceland touted as potentially interested parties. ' Will the co-op or anyone else that gets the Nairn store feel obliged to follow through with those nice drawings that Somerfield revealed to the world?

Sainsbury's on the edge of town you say? - Bring it on!

Whilst the Ballerina becomes the Cinema of Dreams, the old Regal seems to be turning into a Cinema of Nightmares for Nairns hoped for town centre supermarket.

This story's had more sequels than Rocky.

Cinema of Nightmares
Maybe someone should try and rent it and see if we could have a week of horror films the same dates as the Cinema of Dream shows?
Program would start at 11:00 each night when the Vic closes.
Entry £3 or an empty Buckie bottle

...and burn the plans for the new supermarket as part of the opening ceremony, along with all our credit cards?
